Seth Winnick has it all: a successful career in television, good friends, and a passionate relationship with beautiful Chelsea. However, when he fails to make a timely marriage proposal, Chelsea tries to make his life hell.
Due to NCAA sanctions, the Texas State University Fightin' Armadillos must form a football team from their actual student body, with no scholarships to help, to play their football schedule. With fewer players than most teams, the makeshift team must overcome obstacles that the best teams in the country couldn't deal with. Using a 34 year old quarterback, a female placekicker and a gang of misfits, Ed "Straight Arrow" Genero must take his team to play the number one Texas Colts. Written by
When was the last time a Scott Bakula performance blew you out of your seat. Actually, when was the last time a Bakula performance DIDN'T blow you out of your seat. Scotty's back and he's up to his old tricks. In this flick he throws on a denim jacket and cowboy hat and heads back to good ol' Texas State where the football team is desperate to find anyone to fill out their squad (even a 34 year-old). When viewing this, prepare yourself for a stellar performance from Hector Elizondo and even Hogan Familiy's Jason Bateman (fully!). You can expect to find Sinbad "keeping it real" and "to the max". If comedy is your vice than prepare to get naughty because Rob Schneider's one-liners from the press box gave my knee a bruise from slapping it so hard. I know you're probably thinkin'... it's a football film, no girls allowed. No siree, Suzanne Carter is magnificent as a professor who falls for Paul Blake's (Bakula) rugged charm. Kathy Ireland rounds out the cast as the place kicker (and kick she does)! If your ready for a some rowdy, radical comedy on the grid-iron, then make sure you add this little gem to your your "collection de excellance". You can find this film on my shelf right next to other sports comedies such as "The Little Giants", "Major League 1-3", and "Goofus and Galant Take the Field".
